MamaCoca wishes to share with you its specialized information on coca and its derivatives .

Colombia’s history is closely linked to coca's struggle for its existence. Cocaine persecution has conditioned the Nation's political, rural and social developments. Coca and cocaine persecution have underscored corruption, land-ownership concentration, poverty, lack of basic in fracture, unsatisfied basic needs, a tradition of extractivism and  contraband and unsustainable environmental policies.  The way back to building lasting peace in Colombia depends on our knowledge of how the Drug War has fueled  the country's internal conflict.  Following you will find a documented review of  some of the  historical moments of coca and derivatives in Colombia and the lasting social, political and environmental repercussions of their Prohibition.

Mamacoca  is:

MamaCoca is a Colombian environmental and human rights social organization active since 1998 and legally consolidated in France in 2003 under Loi 1901. MamaCoca, apart from being part of the International Drug-Policy Reform Movement, is also part of the wide “biodiverse” Colombian Environmental Movement which has been historically and actively committed to defending a silent devastated victim of Colombia’s Drug War: the Nation's’ natural resources.

The information posted by MamaCoca seeks to feed the "drug" debate from a documented and pluralist perspective.  Through our advocacy and information we hope to contribute to fueling research and informing the design and implementation of public policies geared at conciliating environmental resiliency and sustainability with legal measures aimed at reducing coca growers and drug users' vulnerabilities. 

MamaCoca is a statement.
